The Living in Canada tool is intended for general guidance and reference only. The answers you provide will be used to provide you with resources and services that can help you plan for residency in Saskatchewan. If you are living outside of Canada, to use the Living in Canada tool to create a settlement plan, you must select “No, I applied but am still waiting” when asked “Has IRCC approved your application to come to Canada?”

After you answer the questions, the Living in Canada Tool will create “Your settlement plan.” You can print or email the plan to yourself from that page in order to attach it to your application.
